Hi all, recently installed a set of 31x10.5 tires on my XJ. Ever since then I have been hearing a grinding noise from the front passenger side. I know what you're thinking and no the tires don't rub. Wheel bearing? Help PLEASE it's driving me f!@#ing crazy.

My guess would be a wheel bearing. They are expensive (~$100), so the first thing I would do is jack up the front end and see if there is any play...there should be none. Short of that, swap them and see if the grinding moves to the drivers side. It's a lot of work, but better then buying new ones and having it not fix the problem. Wink
